The battle I was just in last week (admittedly on the high end of the 
scale) had about about 45-50 ships per side. But then, I game with 
some well paid consumers...

I'm a stargrunt guy.... and I have about 120 Marines and other 
figs and a few vehicles purchased in a mass at one point.

est approx 300-320 total  well mixed. Seem to have more d12s than 
anyone could ever need.

No, I'm an 'overkill' gamer. Heck, one can have fun in RPGs with a 
few friends and only a dice or two. (Sometimes none at all). With 
wargames, a few dice and either counters or figures are mandated, but 
collecting is a habit and your collection grows over time, or such 
has been my experience.
